Plaque Psoriasis Prognosis
If treated, it is reasonable to expect that individual plaques of psoriasis will diminish or disappear. It is also expected that new lesions will develop if treatment is abandoned.
Plaque Psoriasis Prevention
The best way for a patient with known psoriasis to prevent its reappearance or exacerbation is to treat the skin with care and avoid traumatic stimuli like sunburns or elective surgical procedures. It is important to avoid picking or rubbing off the scale.
